Kring Elenzano


Philippine Online Video Site Holds Auditions

Wanna be Web-famous in the Philippines? Manila-based online video production company Flippish is looking for new talent.

YouTube has been huge in the Philippines for years, and one of the biggest stars on YouTube is Filipina. Filipinos clearly love online video, and Flippish hopes to tap into that passion by offering content uniquely tailored to Filipino tastes.

If you think you’ve got what it takes to build the next Revision3 in Southeast Asia, if you’re up to the challenge of engaging audiences through a new medium in an emerging market, come to 1101 Pacific Center Building, San Miguel Avenue, Ortigas Center, Pasig City, Metro Manila, Philippines from 10am to 5pm on February 5, 2010 (GMT+8).

Flippish is a young startup targeting consumers in a developing nation, so don’t expect to make a million bucks like Leo Laporte. As you can see from the video above, Flippish star Kring Elenzano is seriously overworked. She could use some help.

Philippine Blog Awards 2009 Promo Video

A handful of Filipino bloggers recently came together to shoot a short video for the 2009 Philippine Blog Awards. In order of appearance, you have political blogger Marck Rimorin, videoblogger Coy Caballes, photoblogger Markku Seguerra, some tech blogger guy, and political blogger Juned Sonido. Video produced for Flippish by hotshot Filipina filmmaker and former cosplayer Kring Elenzano, herself a blogger as well.

Yes, that’s two political bloggers. Don’t even get me started on how messed up the Philippine political situation is. On the rare occasions it even touches technology, it makes a mess.

This year’s show features a Readers’ Choice Award. Vote for your favorite Philippine blog online, or via SMS.

(Disclosure: This blog is a finalist for both Readers’ Choice and Best Technology Blog.)
